Former independent counsel Ken Starr said Wednesday there are legitimate concerns over whether the report of special counsel Robert Mueller has been written "in a fair and balanced way."
In remarks on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," Starr noted "so many questions have been raised" about the alleged bias of the Mueller investigative team ahead of the release of their full report Thursday.
"They've had the opportunity — without any kind of check or balance — to write whatever they want to write," Starr said. "And that I think legitimately raises concern of fairness and balance."
Star said the frustration after the release will also be "we don't have it all" because of legally necessary redactions — and readers' tendencies will be for "cherry picking."
"It is inevitable . . . a lot of interpretation and extrapolation," he said, adding: "It would be good if we could call a national timeout and actually review what we have and then come to a more sober judgment. But politics is politics."
